Ingredients

  • 3 cups rolled oats (uncooked) 
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/3 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped dried apples
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. 
  •  Mix oats, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl and set aside. 
  • In another bowl, mix together honey/maple syrup, oil and vanilla. Pour over oat mixture and stir everything together until oats are well coated. Spread evenly over a parchment paper lined cookie sheet (or two depending on how big your cookie sheet is. It is important that the granola is in a thin layer while cooking) .
  • Bake for 20 minutes, stirring at the midway point. 
  • Remove from oven and add apples and almonds, stirring everything together on the cookie sheet. Put back into the oven for 10 more minutes. 
  • Once done, remove from the oven and let cool for several hours, stirring occasionally. The granola will harden as it cools. Once completely cool, store in an air tight container for up to two weeks.

Notes

  • Granola is something you can have fun with and make to fit your personal tastes.
  • I have many different kinds of granola I like to make, but this recipe is one of my family's favorites, and the one I get the most "I need that recipe!" requests for.
